  • This book is intended to introduce environmental scientists and managers to the statistical methods that will be useful for them in their work. A secondary aim was to produce a text suitable for a course in statistics for graduate students in the environmental science area. I wrote the book because it seemed to me that these groups should really learn about statistical methods in a special way. It is true that their needs are similar in many respects to those working in other areas.

  • The parallelism between the Arabic and English sentences is quite clear in the learners' errors. The two examples above demonstrate that in the first sentence the students dropped verb to be, while in the second one, they used verb to be but deleted the indefinite article. This fact supports the students’ comments that they know the grammatical rules that underlie the deviant sentences they have produced, but because of their reliance on their native language, they have produced these errors. ...

  • For millennia, advances in human progress have been tied to our ability to protect ourselves from the harmful effects of the wastes we produce—ranging from human waste to the organic and inorganic by-products of everyday living. Across the world, cultures learned to bury their dead away from their homes and to burn their waste or make certain that it was carried away by streams and rivers flowing downstream from their homes. Those cultures that learned this most effectively thrived. When the industrial revolution took place in the nineteenth century, rivers again enabled progress.

  • Cimate change is one of the most important global environmental problems facing the world today. Evidence of a changing climate is all around us, from rising sea level to retreating mountain glaciers, melting Arctic sea ice, lengthening growing seasons, shifting animal migration patterns, and other changes. Such changes are already having adverse impacts on people’s well-being, as climate change amplifies the effects of other environmental and socioeconomic changes and problems and produces new effects of its own.

  • The technical, scientific, policy, and institutional environment for conduct- ing Earth science research has been changing rapidly over the past few decades. Changes in the technical environment are due both to the advent of new types and sources of remote sensing data, which have higher spatial and spectral resolution, and to the development of vastly expanded capa- bilities in data access, visualization, spatial data integration, and data manage- ment.

  • “The problem isn’t the number of jobs in America; it’s the quality of jobs. Look closely at the economy today and you find two growing categories of work – but only the first is commanding better pay and benefits. This category involves identifying and solving new prob- lems. Here, workers do R&D, design and engineering. Or they’re responsible for high-level sales, marketing and advertising. They’re composers, writers and producers. They’re lawyers, bankers, fi- nanciers, journalists, doctors and management consultants.

  • Fe-Pt materials have been widely prepared by vacuum evaporation technique. Recently, chemical and physicochemical methods have been successfully used to make Fe-Pt nanoparticles, thin films. This paper reported another physicochemical method, namely sonoelectrodeposition, to produce Fe-Pt nanoparticles. In the sonoelectrodeposition, the electrodeposition process was assisted with a sonicator. The Ti horn of the sonicator played a role as the cathode on which Fe-Pt nanoparticles were deposited.

  • Sustainability in natural systems is built on the closed-end process of recycling materials. Our present society produces so much that is not recyclable, like resin-molded chairs and air polluting automobile tires, that it is necessary to apply intention to source reduction and product responsibility. Chapter 18 provides knowledge of municipal solid waste and how to disposal and recovery.

  • An ecosystem is a biotic (organic) community joined with the abiotic (inorganic) conditions it lives in. Abiotic factors determine the kind of biotic community that will be found in a given area because the biotic community is both supported by and limited by the abiotic factors. Ecosystems are important because they are the functional units of sustainable life on Earth, making them models of the cycles that produce sustainability.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of pesticide use in farming? Do you think that some contamination of food products or drinking water with pesticides residues is an acceptable price to pay for attractive, affordable, and abundant produce? Why?

  • This book is an introduction to computer science. Computer science is the study of computer hardware, algorithms, and data structures and how they fit together to provide information systems. Each of these topics can be studied at various levels. For example, physicists study the properties of matter that allow hardware components to be designed, electrical engineers study how the components can be combined to produce circuits, and computer engineers study how circuits can be combined to produce computers.

  • Global warming is the rising average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans since the late 19th century and its projected continuation. Since the early 20th century, Earth's average surface temperature has increased by about 0.8 °C, with about two thirds of the increase occurring since 1980. Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and scientists are more than 90% certain that most of it is caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases produced by human activities such as deforestation and the burning of fossil fuels.
